I have a custom column for the read status of the books in my library. I'm using a reading device and have an auto populated list to keep track of the stories on the device. If I delete a book from the device, it's because I've read it. So I need a way to automatically change the value in the "read" column to yes.
Or is there already a way I haven't discovered?
What I have done to accomplish this is to have two Reading Lists, one that tracks the books on my device and another to track the books I have read. If you do this, you can use the Reading List Move to List... option to move your read book from your Device list to your Read list. You can set up your Read list to have the following setting for Column Update Options:

When changing this List: Update column for add or remove
Column to Update: <name of your Read tracking field>
Value in column to add/remove: Yes

Hope this helps.
